The other night I spent a few hours redesigning my personal website to better set it up as a blog. Call me crazy, but I may want to eventually be known for a blog that doesn’t have a recurring feature called “F*&k You! Friday.”
As if winning some award in 2011 and having a great job wasn’t enough, a part of me needs to be seen as legit by a bunch of strangers on the internet.
But then I started thinking more about who makes it big online these days.
When was the last time you heard of someone making it big as a blogger?
Yeah, that’s what I thought.
Blogging isn’t cool anymore. It’s lame.
I recognize the value of text on the internet. It powers all kinds of search. But we live in an age of multimedia and reading requires effort. Effort that could be spent looking at cute photos. Or watching cute videos.
I recognize the value and power of blogs. But somedays it seems like YouTube killed the blogger.
